Guestbook comments from the manager

BEAUTIFUL VILLA WITH A BIG, CLEAN POOL A NICE GARDEN. IT`S ALSO A VERY QUIET NEIGHBOURHOOD, AND LOVELY TO SIT AND RELAX.



WE WERE HERE WITH OUR CHILD OF 17 MONTH,S AND EVERYTHING WAS HERE WHAT ASKED FOR (COT AND HIGH CHAIR).

A WELCOME PACK WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE , BUT WAS NOT REALLY A PROBLEM FOR US BECAUSE WE ARRIVED WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, AND WE COULD DIRECTLY GO TO A SHOP.



(WE HAVE LISTENED TO OUR CLIENTS, AND NOW THE VILLA WILL HAVE AN WELCOME PACK WITH WATER, MILK, BISCUITS, SUGAR, ETC)...



ALBUFEIRA IS A NICE TOWN WITH GOOD RESTAURANTS AND NICE SHOPS. WE COULD RECOMMEND RESTAUTANT " A RUINA" BESIDES ALBUFEIRA FISHERMAN’S BEACH WHERE YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL VIEW TO THE BEACH AND THE SEA.



WE WENT TO SAGRES (CABO SAO VICENTE), PORTIMAO, VILAMOURA (NICE PARK) AND ZOO MARINE IN GUIA, IT WAS ALL WORTH TO GO AND SEE

HOPEFULLY WE CAN COME BACK IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS. WE WISH ENJOY A VERY NICE STAY IN VILLA JULIA AND ALBUFEIRA.

The most perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at Villa Julia this past June.

We travelled as a family of three, myself my husband and our 4 year old daughter. My mum also joined us for a few nights during our two week stay.

On first impressions arriving in the middle of the night, we thought the villa was a little dated. However upon waking up in the morning, we realised this was purely cosmetic. It is an absolutely stunning villa, in the most beautiful peaceful, green setting. Sitting by the pool in the sunshine, is something we all dream of on these cold English days!

The villa is fully equipped with everything you would ever need, the washing machine was a great addition and so useful. The whole villa inside and out was kept beautifully clean for the duration of our stay and the maids were kind and polite. Beds were comfortable, showers powerful, pool glorious, what more could you need! I guess the only thing missing is air con, but we managed perfectly well with the fans provided and the temperature hit Mid 30’s most days.

The location was good, however we couldn’t have managed without the hire Car. We used the run about Clio offered by Carlos which was perfectly functionable, for a reasonable price. (Although no air con - so prepare to be hot!!) Id say a car is a must, unless you are prepared to shell out for cabs.

We visited all the local towns, guia is lovely - you have to try the “best chicken”! It was delicious. Albufeira is ok, although a little over touristy. But loads to do and lots of places to eat so worth a trip. Vilamoura was a beautiful day out, the beach stunning and far more upmarket than Albufeira. We had a day out at the Zoomarine Park which

was a fantastic day out and would highly recommend.

Some days we did use the transfers offered by Hugo (contact details in the villa!) , he was fantastic and gave us some great recommendations of places to go so do ask him if you need local information.

We had a couple of very minor complaints during our stay however Carlos was on hand at all times and all issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently.

All in all, we had the most wonderful two weeks at villa Julia. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone and would return in a heart beat.

Thanks Carlos and team, we hope to be back again soon.

Booking for the 3rd time!

  • 4 of 5

As we had stayed at Villa Julia the previous year we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. As the previous year we spent all our time either sunbathing, swimming, or sitting in the shade under the lovely patio area. This is a wonderful villa to get away from it all and relax. Never before have to gone back to a villa twice, however, we have booked again for next year - so I don't know what better recommendation we can give.

A wonderfully sunny family retreat

  • 4 of 5

The property exceeded my expectations from the extensive grounds, well stocked kitchen to the comfortable beds. The star attraction though must be the pool.

The maid service part way through the week to change towels was an unexpected bonus and the pool staff were on hand to keep on top of things during the week.

The real highlight of the property is its seclusion, ideal for a private family holiday and with the benefit of a 5 - 7 minute drive to Albufeira Old Town and the same to the Marina.

A wonderful week spent here and a property which I intend returning to again and again.

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Booked a quick week away for last minute sun. It turned out to be so much more. The villa was perfect, perfect get away location, yet easy to get everywhere, perfect pool and land area. Although the villa itself is a little dated or you could just say rustic, it was wonderfully clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. As the patio and pool area was so well serviced we only used the actual villa for cooking and sleeping.

Our recommendation is that we have done something we have never done before - we have rebooked for the same time next year - can't get a better recommendation than that.

Many thanks Carlos for making everything so easy.

A little dated but a great villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Julia was a great base for our holiday. Carlos is lovely and very easy to deal with but you might have to forgive his tendency to CAPS lock in his mails.

The villa itself is a little dated with a CRT TV, some older furnishings, etc but to be honest when you are on holiday the last think you should want to do is watch TV and while some fixtures were old, everything was clean and worked perfectly. The pool caretaker and cleaner both did a great job while being almost invisible.

The pool is perfect for a family. There is plenty of room for kids while the deeper section is nice too. The garden is full of flowers and the fruit trees are a nice addition too.

This was not our fist trip to the area and we tend to visit quite a few attractions so I knew this villa would suit us with or car rental. The old town area of Albufeira, the marina and several lovely beaches are easy to drive to, as are the FEISA sand sculpture competition, Zoomarine and the Algarve shopping mall. Most places are less than 10 minutes away and very easy to find even without a sat nav and the Portuguese people are genuine and friendly if you ever need their help.

Would I recommend it to a friend.. in a heartbeat.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed by the photos of this villa which drew me in to start off with. once you get there it is so much better than the pictures. the rooms are a lot bigger than expected. it is about a 15 minute drive to the shopping centre and 15 minute drive in the opposite direction for the old town and albufeira strip.

We couldn't thank Carlos enough. The TV broke on our 2nd Day but we sent Carlos a message to advise him of the issue and low and behold we had a new one that evening.

I Highly Recommend this villa and i can't wait to go back.
